Evaluation: Matching numbers and fully known ownership history. Restored in 2018 by Carrozzeria Cairati in Milan to immaculate standards. It’s a perfect early Miura top to bottom and likely looks even better than it did when it left Sant’Agata in 1968.
Bottom Line: The Miura is the most collectible regular production Lamborghini, and its values have appreciated rather quickly, even relative to other classic Italian thoroughbreds. But relative to later Miuras (the P400 S and SV), the early series P400 is the least powerful, the least refined, the least comfortable, and technically the least desirable. This one’s stellar concours-ready presentation, however, was hard to ignore and it brought a massive price. A new auction record for a P400, in fact, and nearly 600 grand more than Neil Peart’s less than perfect silver P400 S brought at Gooding the following day.
